K-Movie Recommedation: ‘Train To Busan’

If you’re still in the throes of despair after having to say goodbye to Goblin and Gong Yoo, I have some great news to ease your pain. While going through Netflix, I discovered that Train To Busan is available to watch. Score! I saw this movie last year and thought it was excellent and top notch. If you’re a fan of the zombie genre, I give Train To Busan high marks for a great story, great production value, and great acting!

It was a blockbuster hit last year that also helped reinvigorate Gong Yoo’s acting career. If you have Netflix, this is a must watch movie. You can watch it here. One of these days, I will get around to re-watching this one so that I can do a proper review or at least put together a 10 reasons post. In the meantime, I’m working on another post this weekend to recommend some other Korean movies I’ve enjoyed and where you can watch them. While we all love to binge-watch an excellent drama, sometimes we just don’t have the time to do it. K-movies are a perfect solution to this problem.

Tip: If you’re a bit edgy about horror/zombie movies, you may want to avoid watching this one at night while you’re alone. You’ve been fairly warned. 

How To Find K-Dramas And K-Movies On Netflix

And let me tell you that typing “korean drama” (or any other variation) in the search bar on Netflix isn’t very helpful. (And that’s being generous.) You’ll probably bring up a whole mess of results that most likely have zilch to do with your beloved k-drama search. So, if you’re new to Netflix or if you’re thinking about trying it out for a month-long trial, here’s the best way to get straight to your favorite Korean dramas ad free.

K-Movie Review: Project Makeover

jaqHR

Project Makeover is only the second Korean movie I’ve watched. That said, it was declared the worst Korean movie of 2007, so I went into this one with minimal expectations. Even after watching Project Makeover, I felt that the title was a bit unfair and harsh considering that this movie had a few redeeming qualities. At its core, Project Makeover is a story about being true to yourself and not living a life full of regret and sadness over events that have transpired in the past. For that reason alone, I can give credit to the movie’s positive message.
